Exclusive: Super-agent hammers Man United for links to ‘problematic’ player as he arrives at Old Trafford to seal deal
Despite having yet to play their first competitive league match of the new 2022-23 Premier League season, Manchester United have yet to begin their campaign.
Although the Red Devils were humiliated 4-0 by Graham Potter’s Brighton and Hove Albion in the same encounter last season, there was renewed optimism that the English giants would come away with all three points this time around.
It wasn’t to be, and despite United experiencing a summer of change, including the appointment of new manager Erik ten Hag from Ajax, fans might be forgiven for thinking that this season is already shaping up to be much of the same old story.
Pascal Gross’ first-half brace was enough for Potter’s Seagulls to win, leaving United’s team with no choice but to leave the Old Trafford grass with their tails between their legs.
Following Sunday’s dismal performance and outcome, current rumors say that the 20-time league champions are now attempting to recruit Bologna attacker Marko Arnautovic (Sky Sports Italy).
The unexpected linkages, which appear to have appeared out of nowhere, have stunned enthusiasts.
Arnautovic, formerly of Stoke City and West Ham United, has been a decent forward throughout his career, but he is 33 years old and scarcely a household name, and super-agent Rob Segal believes United’s pursuit of him stinks of desperation.’
“I couldn’t believe it when I heard that Manchester United had made a proposal for Marko Arnautovic,” Segal remarked in an exclusive interview.
“No club can come out and say ‘we have a long-term plan in place if they do that kind of business.”
“I really can’t figure it out, and it’s hard not to feel sorry for the fans.” Manchester City, one of their main opponents, has just signed Erling Haaland, while Manchester United is in the market for an average 33-year-old former Stoke City player who has also proven to be a difficult player.
“It just smells like despair.”
